Thanks for your interest in submitting to Causeway Lit. We run monthly contests and accept work for fiction, non-fiction and poetry through our online manager run by Submittable. Craft Essays are accepted year-round.

Please note: All of our submissions are considered anonymously; if your name appears anywhere on the manuscript, you’ll get an email from us saying we can’t consider your work.

To submit:
submit

You should receive an automatically generated email to acknowledge that your submission has been loaded into the system.

We will get back to you within two months. If you have waited more than that and have not heard from us, feel free to give us a nudge via email and we will be happy to give you an update.
